Good morning and happy new week! I am now in full on festive mode so this is my first Christmassy themed blog post!
This information here really resonated with me and I thought many of you would appreciate a read too. As a person who suffers with anxiety in general, the Christmas period often triggers these feelings more than at any other time of the year. As the weather gets colder, I often find my rheumatoid arthritis starts to niggle, which causes more pain and fatigue than usual. The increase in social activities can then be made more difficult, as I try to manage my condition and all the related symptoms. Money worries can become more intense at Christmas and for people who aren’t close with family, it can be a struggle with the extra family time people often expect during this period.
I hope that you find this information both insightful and helpful. As someone who has used Kalms before, I found it really helpful and the tips suggested below are also all worth a look at! Please let me know in the comments which is your favourite tip, or if you have any to add to the list.
According to MIND, one in four adults feel anxious during the festive period, as the extra demands at Christmas become overwhelming. But is there anything that can be done to relieve festive angst and calm anxious moods? The experts a Kalms find out…
Christmas is widely recognised as being a stressful time as people juggle the extra demands of family visits, extra cooking, and the extra social round. But for those who suffer from anxiety, the season becomes increasingly challenging and offers a myriad of reasons to worry.
Commenting on the symptoms and prevalence of anxiety, Anxiety UK CEO Nicky Lidbetter:
“Anxiety is extremely common and at its worst can be incredibly disabling. It is important therefore that those living with anxiety seek early help and that treatment interventions offered are acceptable and accessible.”
“Psychological symptoms of anxiety include worry, spinning thoughts and insomnia due to a racing mind. Anxiety can also affect the body – causing issues such as a racing heartbeat, nausea, headaches, and muscle tension. These symptoms can feel very distressing, particularly over the festive period.”
So, is there anything that can be done to relieve festive angst and calm anxious moods?
Here, the experts at Kalms have put together five simple but effective solutions so that we can all have a very merry Christmas.
